Default Corvette promotional models

Seems as though not many are as interested in these like they used to be?

As a youth I enjoyed buying and selling along with building a small collection and have about 25-30 years worth (mid 70's thorough 2000's) sitting in the basement and wouldn't mind getting rid of them to free up some shelf space but it seems from a quick e-bay and internet search they aren't bringing very much $$ these days.

Any feedback on these or places to sell that anyone knows?

Thanks

Many Slot Car forums are transforming Static cars into moving.
Try a facebook search on a slot car forum that is the same scale as your Corvettes.
Wintertime is the all things slot car related peak,when they bring the highest prices,compared to Spring/Summer,which is their lowest.

Years ago at Barrett-Jackson I bought 116 Corvette Promos. People would ask if I bought anything and I would tell them 116 Corvettes... Still have them and I'm sure not worth near what I paid.....


It is probably the record for Corvettes bought at a auction.......
